It’s not just complete immersion in nature that comes with a stay at the eco-driven Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort — the beachside resort also boasts seven different dining concepts, collectively catering to every mood, every palate, and every occasion. As for some of the culinary highlights worth exploring? Here they are at a glance.
Weekend Levantine Family Breakfast
Gather your family for a decadent weekend breakfast at TEAN, the resort’s signature Levantine-inspired restaurant. Located a stone’s throw away from the idyllic Saadiyat shoreline, it serves breakfast favourites such as shakshuka, falafel, fool and hummus alongside pita bread and Middle Eastern cheeses. Diners looking for smaller food portions can opt for the tasting menu instead — it features breakfast dishes with light touches of Western influences.
The ambience, meanwhile, is just as family-friendly. Parents ready to unwind during the weekend can enjoy their breakfast while their kids indulge in activities such as building sandcastles, tug of war, potato sack races, flying kites and more, all under the supervision of the resort’s dedicated attendants. The weekend breakfast is served from 9am to noon on Saturdays and Sundays.
Business Lunch Menu
Enjoy your lunch break with TEAN’s signature business lunch menu that’s served with an array of Levantine-inspired dishes, with a curated selection of house mezzas, hearty mains and mouthwatering sweets, all served with your choice of beverages. Starting from AED 89, the business lunch menu runs from 12pm to 3pm, Monday through Friday.
Sunset High Tea
Bathed in the glow of sunset, the Arabesque-inspired afternoon tea at TEAN is no ordinary offering. It’s served on the boardwalk leading to the beach, for starters. The setting offers picturesque views and specially curated services, while the set menu reveals Arabian flavours and cold infusion options, a few of the many highlights of the venue’s rich selection. The Sunset High Tea is offered daily from 4pm to 7pm.
Signature Afternoon Tea
Refreshing beverages and Insta-worthy desserts come courtesy of the premium afternoon tea experience at The Majlis. Featured exclusively at this venue, it is served in an elegantly tiered jewellery box, curating a memorable moment for you and your loved ones. With every curated compartment comes a set of gorgeous shareable treasures, with your choice of either Arabian flavours or Western delicacies. The tea accompaniment is also bound to thrill, with cold infusion options being a highlight of the rich selection on offer. Served daily from 2pm to 6pm, the afternoon tea ranges in price from AED 195 per person for the Western Afternoon Tea to AED 338 per two-person for the Arabic Sweets & Savoury Afternoon Tea.
Turtle Afternoon Tea
A themed afternoon tea never disappoints, especially if it manages to give back, too. Case in point: the signature Turtle Afternoon Tea at The Majlis. As Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort is the group’s first eco-conscious resort in Abu Dhabi, this unique offering blends luxury with responsibility. It not only features fine teas and a sumptuous spread of treats inspired by the ocean’s bounty, but also contributes to the property’s conservation mission. Each guest’s participation directly supports Jumeirah’s turtle conservation endeavours, allowing you to be a part of something greater. Priced AED 549 for two guests, the Turtle Afternoon Tea is served daily from 2pm to 6pm.
Breakfast is served at the property’s signature restaurant, White, and everyone’s welcome. It’s not just an intercontinental buffet either — with live stations across the restaurant and fresh bakeries passed around to diners, you’re invited to start your day with a breakfast fit for a king. Priced at AED 185 per person, breakfast is served from 6:30am to 11am.

Mondays translate to Seafood Theme Night, where White’s expert chefs showcase their skills by creating seafood delicacies using the freshest catch of the day. On Wednesdays, diners can immerse themselves in the complex spices of India with Indian Theme Night. And on Fridays, you can indulge in the tantalising tastes of Asia with Asian Theme Night, where the flavours of Japan, China, Thailand and more come together for one unforgettable experience. Priced at AED 235 per person, themed nights take place from 6:30pm to 10:30pm.
